This program began operation in 1985. This project provides all criminal court clients, initially unable to post bail, the opportunity to be interviewed to determine eligibility for release from jail. The interview process objectively assesses the defendant's qualifications for release through release on his/her own recognizance (ROR), or, where the court determines the risk of absconding to be greater, through release under supervision (RUS). Program operations will include screening, eligibility determinations, monitoring functions where appropriate, and court notification of those who fail to satisfy release requirements.

Target populations are pretrial and convicted offenders. New in 2000, this program began providing case-management services to a misdemeanor drug treatment court and, with funding, is scheduled to provide case management to the planned County Drug Court.
